England World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan has expressed uncertainty over his future and said that he is unsure of playing the next ODI World Cup scheduled for the year 2023. In an interview with BBC, Morgan said that the results over the course of time will dictate his future with the England team and that the ongoing assignment at the T20 World Cup is the biggest expectation on his mind.

"I certainly see myself this time next year playing, hopefully, a really strong role in another T20 World Cup," Morgan told the BBC on Thursday. That is the expectation I have put on myself. 

"I am not sure about another two (tournaments). Obviously, results determine how well you do and how often you are kept on. But certainly, my hunger and determination are as strong as ever."

However, he said that he is feeling “at the top” of his game and is “peaking as a captain” of the side. He said that the World Cup triumph in 2019 has given him a lot of confidence and he has been feeling confident about his plays in the field in the recent past.

"The last two and a half years I have probably peaked - or am peaking - as a captain," he said. "I feel I am offering a lot, I am as calm as ever, making really good decisions and getting things as right as often as I possibly could be.

"Since 2019 and winning the 50-over World Cup, it has given me a lot of confidence in making plays during the game - trying to make changes that I think are right and make them work when you can. In that regard I think I am at the top of my game."

Notably, Morgan has been in horrible form with the bat and went on to an extent to say that he doesn’t rule out dropping himself from the playing XI if his bad form continues and England’s chances are affected.
